One meta-analysis of data in 70 papers reported that clinical ketosis, dystocia, and retained placenta were associated with a slight decrease in the FSC rate (4% to 10%) and that metritis was associated with a moderate decrease (20%), whereas stillbirth, milk fever, abomasal displacement, and mastitis were not associated with FSC rate [9].
Various biological and environmental factors, such as herd, cow parity, BCS at 1 month postpartum and first AI, resumption of cyclicity within 1 month of calving (determined by the existence of a CL using ultrasonography), year, AI season, insemination at detected estrus (IDE) or timed AI, peri- and postpartum disorders (dystocia, retained placenta, septicemic metritis, clinical endometritis, ketosis, milk fever, and abomasal displacement), and calving to first AI interval, were evaluated.
Abomasal displacement was diagnosed by the detection of a ping' sound during abdominal auscultation within 4 weeks postpartum.
This model included BCS at 1 month postpartum ([greater than or equal to] 2.75 vs <2.75), IDE or timed AI, peri- and postpartum disorders (dystocia, retained placenta, septicemic metritis, clinical endometritis, ketosis, milk fever, and abomasal displacement), calving to first AI interval (<80 vs [greater than or equal to] 80 days), cows that did or did not conceive at first AI, and the interactions between these variables.
